Presbyterian Healthcare Service’s (PHS) PGY2 ID residency program is designed to develop a practitioner proficient in infectious diseases pharmacotherapy and antimicrobial stewardship. The primary responsibility of the resident includes participation in the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program (ASP) and clinical activities with the general ID consult services. The resident will contribute to antimicrobial stewardship activities at inpatient, outpatient, and population levels within the integrated healthcare system. The resident will precept PGY1 residents and pharmacy students.
The PHS ID/ASP program enjoys strong senior leadership commitment and active collaboration with ID physician groups. The team utilizes EPIC ICON software, which allows for system-wide impact. The resident will have the opportunity to work with experts throughout the enterprise, and across the continuum of care to enhance patient care through optimizing antimicrobial therapy, driving change through EPIC enhancements, and in the population health arena. Residents who successfully complete this program will possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and position them to be eligible for attainment of board certification in infectious diseases pharmacy.
